The FS300 Thermometer Was Great for Me

I bought this thermometer when my son was born almost 11 months ago, and I have had no problems with it at all. It has worked great and is really easy to use.
I want to point out, this is NOT a paid review. Oricom did not send me this or reward me in any way. It's my honest review. I say that because I just looked up other reviews on the FS300 thermometer, and it seems that some people have had issues. Mostly with the accuracy. This has not been the case for me at all.

What I liked About the FS300 Thermometer

Non Contact: The main reason I bought this Thermometer is because it is non contact. You do have to get close, but no need to touch your baby.
Easy to Use: This is so simple to use. There are a couple of settings, but once it's set, just point and press the button each time you want a temperature reading.
Storing Past Readings: You can go back and see the last 32 recorded temps. Great if you need to track them when your baby has a fever.
Sturdy Construction: It just feels solid. I haven't dropped it to test it's ruggedness, but just handling this item feels like it is built well.
Long Lasting Battery: 2AAA batteries last a very long time. I don't use this every day, but I haven't changed the batteries yet. 10 months since putting them in.

What I didn't Like

To be honest, unlike other reviews I have seen, for me, there is not much to complain about with this thermometer. It's not the cheapest thermometer out there, and there is a slight accuracy issue which is even pointed out in their manual (+-0.2deg). But other than that... not much I don't like about the FS300.
